signal just died. >> and jennifer ruber and stephen law. jen, i go to you first. really, if you can't cut a little pbs, what can you you cut. this is going to kill obama. >> it drives people back to that debate. rox knee couldn't get a better person to run. and i think they are convinced that they can still. destroy romney. i don't think that is possible after 70 million people see it directly and make an assessment of this guy. and they have another week before the presidential debate while public opinion sets in. he is pumped up and i'll have it written up tomorrow. he sounds poised and focused and i think the president is in a little bit of trouble. >> first of all, saesame street wants the add pulled and third of all, the thing that troubles me, he will not face the press. not once after the bengazi ca tr catastrophy. >> as far as big bird, it was fun and it made a good point. if more children had been educated by that program in their early years. i think the add is over the top in many ways and plus, if you are going to do it, get it first. but look, i agree with jennifer, i think t
? >> well, it would make it very challenging. in fact, we have an emergency manager law used, but when it's used it's a major help to prevent bankruptcies and other challenges. that's also on the ballot. this would override that and leave us in a spot where communities might have bankruptcy as an option, and that's a very bad answer. >> governor, let me just ask you, what are the mechanics of this thing? in other words, if they get collective bargaining as a matter of state constitutional rights, does that undo all of your reforms as you call it to the michigan comeback? does that give the unions power even over the state legislature? is it that bad? >> it would in many aspects take us back in time and give a lot of power to unions in terms of the negotiating process and really wipe out a lot of benefits we have. we're the comeback state. we've gone through tough recessions before. we need to keep going. that's where i encourage our citizens to get out there look at the details of this and vote no on proposal two. >> will this bring out a bigger turnout? i've seen recent polls that show t
.s. laws. it is likely to become fodder for the u.s. presidential campaign, and there was a big piece -- >> on "60 minutes" and "wall street journal" and chavez won. >> apparently this is just a rumor, the bls the entire of bureau labor statistics from here was flown down to venezuela to monitor the election. >> the chicago guys were thrown down. >> ba-dum-boom. let's get to the story, the venezuelan president hugo chavez as joe was just saying -- >> 54-45. >> comfortable election victory that could extend his rule to 20 years. the next election isn't officially for six years but you had tens of thousands of ecstatic supporters flooding the streets around the presidential palace in downtown caracas, pumped their fists in the air and started shouting chavez's name. enrique capriles, he was beat by more than nine points. it will extend a wave of nationalizations and continue his support for left wing allies. we've heard how important this is for cuba, he has billions at his fingertips because of the oil produced there. this is the country we think has the biggest oil reserves in the wor
on foreign relations. >> -- though it should be done in collaboration, not like these other laws set up where "you shall be cyber secure, and if you're not we're going to come after you." we need their help. the cia, nsa, department of defense, they actually know what these attacks are at the border sometimes and we don't. so business is going to have to work together in this protect the american public so we can stop cyber crime. but it is a big deal, it is going to get worse. computers in ten years are going to be 100,000 times faster and so they'll be able to do calculations quicker and get through quicker. we're going to have to meet that in every way, shape or form. believe me -- banks i think are pretty good at this. we've been doing this a long time and there are rules and regulations and -- but we have to really stay in front of it. how many of you are worried about that? don't think of just the cyber security coming over the internet to you. like everything we do, we do authenticate you. we know more about that stuff than some you think. think about the person that joins your company
party. in fact, that's not the case. enterprise law in china requires a kfc china or walmart china or cisco china or hauwei to allow for the existence of a communist party committee within the organization. hauwei, like these other companies, allows for that existence. the communist party committee doesn't have any interaction with or influence on our business operations. >> but it's alleged by our investigators that the company did not cooperate at all with the investigation. is that true? and if so, why not? if there's nothing to hide, if the company did nothing wrong, why not cooperate? >> oh, that's a great point. the company cooperated immensely. we hosted the staff in washington in december and then in china in february and members and staff in hong kong in may, with our ceo. we responded to multiple ent interrogatories, delivered reams and reams of paper. while we were with transparency and good faith, we got a book-long press release that launched the investigation last november. >> they go into quite a lot of detail in the report itself, and a lot of it, hauwei, they say,
law enforcement agencies. they claim, at least, that huawei may be in violation of certain laws. we'll see. again there is a great deal of conjecture in today's report but you you need to sort of connect the dots to really get to the final conclusion that says, hey, these guys are really bad guys. that being said, it's a huge issue between the united states and china. not that we don't have many of them. we also talked to chairman rogers about that as well this morning. they are, as we all know, one of the largest holders of our debt. they are one of our largest trading partners. but this is an issue that many feel need to be elevated to that same level of importance when we talk to chinese leaders. >> david, thank you so much. bob, down to you. >>> there are several big american tech companies who are watching this showdown very closely with china. tech correspondent jon fortt in silicon valley looking at which companies stand to win and lose in all this. >> bob, the biggest, most obvious winner here is cisco because that's huawei's arch enemy in the networking space. cisco has acc

of issues i think people aren't really thinking about when it comes to the changes in the tax laws and what should we do. we're all just searching for income. it may be you want to take capital gains. >> i do think a lot of these questions are going to be head winds for the market. i think, you know, overall when you do have a lot of this uncertainty about how are my investments going to be treated, i think you can see a lot of people just start to pull money off the table, except maybe where you see companies that are actually showing some enthusiasm that we see a possible pattern. >> if i could point out the alternatives here, guys. we didn't talk about buying back stock. there's evidence that may be a very effective investment strategy as well. i know this has been a big play this year, but companies have been buying back a lot of stock. >> another usage of cash. >> can i add one thing? there's usually various things you can do with cash. you can pay dividends. you can do capital expenditures. you can buy back shares. or you can do mergers and acquisition. we know corporations are boardi
of laws, regulations that are built for an analog world that we need to break down. the rogers bill goes a long way towards doing that. i think that there's a lot of investment we could unleash in this space. we have to get out some of the regulatory underbrush that currently exists. >> all right. you heard it first here, folks. something we'll probably be talking about in the weeks and months to come. thank you both for joining us. appreciate it. >> you bet. >>> money spinner or money burner? amazon's billionaire ceo says the online retailer sells its kindle e-readers at cost. we're going to debate whether that's a smart strategy on the other side of the break. >>> and from one billionaire to another. >> let's say if i wanted to buy something like the los angeles lakers, i could go buy the los angeles lakers. they're not for sale. >> but you'd like to buy them? >> oh, sure. i'd love to buy the lakers. >> was the dye already cast there? larry ellison speaking about liking the lakers just a couple weeks ago. turns out he may be bidding on the company that owns them. our wealth editor comi
cyber threat information. he wants to share with the private sector, current law prohibits him from doing that and part of the new legislation will allow him to share that threat information to allow us to better protect ourselves in corporate america. >> do we need legislation which the business groups say would be very costly? do we actually need legislation or can this be done through some private consortium is of information sharing? ? no, it can't, because what we've seen so far is all of the efforts for voluntary action have fallen short. what secretary panetta said in a pre-9/11 environment we had warning to do something. he's pointing to cyberspace right now in that same way. remember, larry, i was there, and i saw those warnings and the cyberspace were in the same space. nbc news terrorism analyst, thank for helping us out. ? you bet. up, in, mitt romney won last week's debate big time. he became a game changer. what's the case he made to reelect barack obama? no one seems to know that including obama himself. that's next on "the kudlow report." ♪ [ male announcer ] the f

. >> enterprise law requires a kfc china or walmart china or a wow way to allow for the existence for a communist party committee within the organization. like the other companies, they allow for that existence. the communist party committee doesn't have any interaction with or influence on our business operation. >> both companies continue to insist their equipment is safe and poses no threat to u.s. tell wh telecom structures. joining us is director of global risk analysis for asia pacific. dean, are these concerns the u.s. is raising valid? >> well, i think some of them are. if you looked at the report, there were a number of issues that were raised. ip loss, protection of intellectual property, trading with sanction country including iran, business practices. but really the one underlying all of this explicit or otherwise, implicit, is the security of the actual systems that wow way or zte might be selling in to the united states. and that really comes back to a trust factor and transparency of the organizations themselves. which they've been trying for many years now to improve, improve thei
at doing but also probably to lay down a little bit of the law saying they have to get it done. here she arrives at the parliament. let's show you some video. there's been a lot of anti-german sent nimt greeiment. i find this emotionally disturbing, i look people dressed at nazis with the nazi flag, the hitler salute going through the square to protest. >> wow. >> angela merkel and her arrival there. i want to bring in nigel farage, one of the biggest euro skeptics out there, the founding member of the uk independence party and member of the european parliament a representative of the uk. >> good morning. >> what do you think when you see the pictures on the ground in greece? >> i just think this european project which if you remember was designed after world war ii to bring europe closer together to make us all love each other and look what it's doing. it's actually making the north and the south of europe hate each other. yes you've got those people dressed up in nazi uniforms, in athens but don't forget the tabloid press in germany are writing every day the greeks are usele useless, l
there is not enough focus for the bank of japan. >> we're now seeing china to law the renminbi to appreciate. what impact does that have? >> well, it's a step in the right direction. not with the tensions across north of asia. and again indication of that fwchlt dp growth in china is not going as they would like to. and i don't know if this is going to continue. >> marco, thanks very much for your time this morning. >>> meanwhile, just over an hour and ten minutes or so into the trading day. european stocks down, well, pretty level pegging actually if you take a look at it between advancers and decliners. yesterday around about half percent losses. right now ftse 100 up 11 points. cac 40 up mildly. ibex interestingly enough is down this morning as you you might expect around about a percent. let's take a look at spanish yields. they're nudging back up towards 6%. 5.92%. we talked the italian auction coming up this morning, too, up to 6 billion of 2015 btps. we'll show where you we trade on that. currently at 3%. those results around 10:00 london time. 11 cet. >> as far as currency markets, certain
points and i wonder if there's a law of diminishing returns but we're going to go here anyway and i'll start with what roger altman just said was that mr. biden needs to point out that 99% of the romney positions changed at the time of the first debate. now is that accurate in your view? >> no. listen, i don't know where this stuff's coming from. i've been on the road with governor romney. i've been watching all of these speeches. i know what his positions are. i've heard about governor romney and paul ryan have been talking about their five-point plan for months, education, energy, trade agreements, debts, deficits, small business. i mean the reason i can rattle them off isn't because i'm studying them on a piece of paper. i've heard them talk about this for a long time, and as far as this sort of, you know, transformational story that's out there, it just isn't true. he is who he is and he's been that person the entire time and what you saw on the debate at least last week were two guys that were unfiltered. the american people got to see that for the first time, and i think they
certainly will. she took the explicit structure and embedded it in california law with the help of the trial lawyers so that if they make a mistake in servicing your loan you can sue them, and they have to pay for the litigation, by the way, the defendant has to pay legal expenses. this is common in california. >> so california is a big marketplace. >> i think it's very interesting. the u.s. government's already looking at having different servicing fees for different states, for example, judicial state where you can't foreclose. well that problem is the same for fannie and freddie as it is for a bank and if they can't get a hold of collateral on a loan, do you want to write production in that state, do you want to have different servicing fees and california is a nightmare. most people in the industry today do not understand what she's done. let me give you another example. say you get foreclosed in california. year goes by, house prices go up, you as the former debtor go back and sue the lender for personal injury under california law and most banks do not understand this. >> one comment t
violated some laws. how important is this, dave? >> it's important. chairman rogers was an important component of the piece we did early this month that was on chinese cyber espionage. it focused on huawei. a company discovered the chinese were in their system, nortel. they went out of business. some claim it's because of huawei. chairman rogers is trying to raise the alarm on this. i can only tell you from firsthand experience, so many ceos of fortunate 500 companies who would not come on the program that we did a number of months ago because they fear for their business in china have admitted to me face to face that their firewalls had been breached by the chinese, that they'd been informed of that by the fbi. and so by doing this, chairman rogers simply is able to raise a larger awareness of it. as for the huawei allegation, we'll see. we haven't seen the report yet and the specifics. >> the reason why the issue has been treated with -- this has been going on over the course of a decade at least. it's not just in technology. it's in other areas of business where intellectual prope
have actually seen it in trying to grab something. >> is there a china law in this country? a china lobby saying stay away from them because we need them so badly? >> i don't know. >> a lot of companies need to sell to china. the last thing they want to do, i don't think they want to hear about a trade war, given they own so many kentucky fried chickens in china. >> there's a trillion dollars in treasury bonds pretty strong lobbying. >> that's true. that's true. >> i think you're right. the main thing about china is it is more complicated that it seems. >> finally, a couple interesting notes on banks, david, the makenzie report saying the business model will provide sustainable profits and there's a poll of bankser who believe their numbers will get better, not worse. >> optimism never dies when it comes to people's pay. you look around them to see everything falling down but i was a star. i served to get paid well. we talked a lot about it. i think when you talk to the executives who run many of the global institutions, it is coming down in a true way. it's a seminole change in ter
